Ryanair says strong customer demand in the MidWest region is the driver behind the decision to expand its summer schedule at Shannon Airport next year.

The airline this morning announced the addition of two new routes – Porto in Portugal and Naples in Italy – which will operate out of Shannon from the end of March to the end of October on a twice weekly basis.

The move brings the total number of routes operated by Ryanair at Shannon Airport next summer to 26, with over 180 weekly flights – a 35% increase on its Summer ‘22 offering.



Head of Communications at Ryanair, Jade Kirwan, has been telling Clare FM’s Rebecca O’Sullivan that it’s important that they continue to expand at Shannon Airport in order to satisfy demand.
